Remote polling booths announced for some of Maranoa’s most remote communities

The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) is helping residents in some of the Maranoa electorate’s most remote communities cast their vote for The Voice to Parliament referendum by establishing remote voting booths.

Designed to help isolated Australians cast their vote, the remote voting booths also allow for the community to connect and have their say on the nation’s future.

Federal Member for Maranoa and Leader of The Nationals David Littleproud said the remote voting booths were vital to ensuring locals in regional, remote and outback Australia could participate in democracy.

“The Maranoa electorate includes some of the most remote communities in our country and the AEC is making it easier for those Australians to cast their votes on this referendum,” Mr Littleproud said.

“A total of 26 Maranoa communities will host a remote voting booth from September 25 until referendum day on October 14.

“I encourage members of those communities to come together, do their civic duty, and make their deeply personal decision on this referendum.”

A further 13 Maranoa communities will host early voting centres, which will give locals the chance to cast their vote early should they be unable to vote on October 14.

“Whether it’s by post, a remote voting booth, at an early voting centre or at your local polling booth on October 14, I encourage everyone to cast their vote,” Mr Littleproud said.
